Medicare Payment for WLS

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used Medicare to pay for their WLS? I have been told that Medicare will pay for WLS as long as you meet their requirements. I am planning to have a Gastric bypass and use Medicare to pay for their part of it. I also have another insurance which will pay what Medicare does not pay. It is not a supplement for Medicare, it is a regular insurance company.

I used Medicare and it was not an issue.

Thanks so much. I don't have any patience but I am doing my best to be patient. It may be Oct. before I get a surgery date. I finish my things for insurance mid August I think and they are booked out about 6 weeks the nurse told me. Thanks again for answering me.
